It's hard to say when Ailan turned bitter. He strode through the hallway into his new domain, the Evergreen High gymnasium. The school principal worked with maintenance on sound equipment. Ailan cleared his throat. Turning on a heel, the principal nearly tripped off the stage.
Haseieus picked up the expensive looking bottle of wine. His little brother, Ruayde, was hitting on the store clerk using a bunch of bananas. Haseieus rolled his eyes and put the bottle in his basket. The two were having a small get together with his friend, Dred, who was terrible at picking up chicks. He felt a tap at his shoulder. It was the store clerk, holding Ruayde by the ear.
It was then, when I was tied to a metal bed, that I fought. I didn't want experiments done on me, obviously who would? I struggled, I fought, and in the end, there was a mask over my face making me breathe something funny, I couldn't figure out what was so special about me. I knew I was the Mind Slayer but still!

"Nycto! Where are you hiding?" I call out into the eternal night of the woods. The bushes next to the back door rustle. I run back into the house. He's not allowed to frighten me again. I might end up seriously injuring him this time. Nycto is my mate. Ironic right? Hi, my name's Ivory. Nycto and I live away from cities. In a place where it's eternally night time.
